"In the cocktail world, to use a cliché, not only is everything up to date in Kansas City, it is light years ahead. Beyond just spirits in a glass, this stunningly creative establishment offers an immersive European/ American cocktail experience that is as much about the sum of its parts as it is about having a drink.
The unification of art and design focused on the ethereal butterflies, and the intense attention to using the world’s finest ingredients for the cocktails, make The Monarch a completely unique destination.
